As a teenager it didn’t get any better than party food and a video of Saturday Night Fever on the TV as we danced around the room to We Should Be Dancing and imagined we were Stephanie! For those not familiar with the story, Saturday Night Fever is about Tony Manero who is an amazing dancer and has one goal in life to leave his dead end job and become a dancing king, so he decides to enter a dance competition at his local night club.
I took a friend along to see the musical and she was very impressed with the staff at the theatre and how ready they were for anything we needed, she loved the hall and the whole atmosphere of being there.
The musical is a fest for the eyes and soul, I dare anyone not be on their feet and singing their hearts out by the end. Everyone was having an amazing time, the cast were very interactive with the crowd and getting people on their feet dancing at the end. We loved all the music, some of the favourites being We Should Be Dancing and How Deep Is Your Love.
I took a girlfriend along to this as I felt my husband would not be interested and I think I made the right choice but I think anyone with a love of musicals and music will love this.
A must see musical and it will brighten your soul and warm your body on these cold nights.
I felt the whole cast were outstanding; singing, playing instruments, dancing, as well as acting. The storyline is believable and easy to follow. CiCi Howells was standout for me though as the club singer and whenever she appeared on stage I did find it hard to pay attention to anything other than her voice so did get a bit muddled with the storyline.
My friend struggled at the beginning to hear the main lead when he was singing but she spoke to a member of staff and this was soon fixed.
We loved this good time musical and would encourage everyone to see it!
